Dear Eagles Fans,
 
The Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders are excited to announce the date of our annual Junior Cheerleading Clinic presented by Teva Pharmaceuticals. Don’t miss our only junior cheerleading clinic of the year! The dance routines and cheers will be created by Eagles Cheerleaders Choreographer, Dwayne Townsend, and the clinic will be instructed by the Eagles Cheerleaders!

This 2 1/2 hour event will take place on Saturday, November 9, 2013. Children ages 5-13 will have the unique opportunity to receive professional cheerleading instruction from Eagles Cheerleaders in preparation for a live performance in front of parents/guardians on the sidelines of Lincoln Financial Field at the end of the clinic!

For $65 ($55 for Eagles Kids Club members), your child can have the experience of a lifetime.  In addition to instruction from Eagles Cheerleaders, each participant will receive a set of poms, photograph with Eagles Cheerleaders taken and printed on-site, customized paracord bracelet, customized sparkle lanyard, poster of the entire 2013 Eagles Cheerleaders Squad, opportunity for cheerleader autographs, and a snack!

Based on popularity last year, there will be an area designated just for parents/guardians that prefer to participate in a brief dance work-out instead of watching the instructional part of the clinic, which will also be instructed by Eagles Cheerleaders. This will be offered free of charge.

Please note: In case of inclement weather, the performance will be held inside the SCA Club Lounge.

 Frequently Asked Questions

1) Do the parents/guardians attending have to purchase tickets?

No. Each ticket includes access for ONE (1) participant and TWO (2) parents/guardians/siblings. 

2) Is the ticket good for both sessions?

No, each ticket is good for only one of the sessions.  When you purchase your ticket, you will be asked to choose which session you would like to register for.

3) Where will the event be held?

The Clinic will be held in the SCA Club Lounge at Lincoln Financial Field.  Complimentary parking will be provided in the “L” Lot.  From Pattison Ave, turn onto Darien Street and the “L” Lot is the third entrance on your right.  There will be signage directing you to this area.

4) Are the parents/guardians allowed to watch the clinic or just the performance?

Parents/guardians are invited to watch both the clinic and the closing performance. 

5) Does registration have to be done online?

Yes.  You can register by clicking on the link above. 

6) Should participants have prior cheerleading experience?

No prior cheerleading experience is required.  The goal of the clinic is for participants of all ages to learn basic cheers and dances in a fun, non-competitive setting. 

7) Will the participants be broken down into smaller groups?

Participants will be broken into groups according to age: 5-6, 7-8, 9-10 and 11-13. This will allow each child to get more personalized instruction and to learn with children their own age.  Each group will have its own team of Eagles Cheerleaders as clinic instructors and each age group will have its own performance. 

8) What should my child bring?

A lot of enthusiasm!  Water and a snack will be provided to participants during the clinic.  Breakfast or lunch will not be served, so we recommend that participants and their parents eat before the clinic.  

9) What should my child wear?

Something comfortable – we recommend sneakers, athletic shorts and a T-shirt.  With this year’s clinic being held in October, depending on the weather, you may prefer to have your child wear athletic pants and a long sleeve t-shirt or sweatshirt. For the performance on the field, you may prefer to have your child wear a jacket. Cheerleading uniforms are not required. 

10) Are cameras allowed?

Yes.  All types of cameras and video cameras will be permitted. 

11) Can we bring items to be autographed by the cheerleaders?

Yes.  Cheerleaders will be available for autographs and photographs during the registration period. 

12) Once I register, is there any other paperwork that I need to fill out?

Yes. You will be asked to sign a standard waiver upon arrival.

13) Is there a place where parents purchase any refreshments or merchandise while attending the clinic?

Yes. There will be a concession stand open for parents and a merchandise stand with latest Eagles gear.

14) What do I need to know if I am a parent/guardian that is interested in participating in the dance clinic?

When you arrive at registration, you will be asked by the staff if you are interested in participating. At that time, you will just need to fill out a waiver and you will be given a wristband. You do not need a special ticket to participate and there is no additional fee. Once the clinic starts, you can report to the area that is designated just for parents/guardians to participate. We suggest wearing athletic attire. The cheerleaders will be teaching stretches, a warm-up, and aerobic style dance moves. The instruction will conclude prior to the performance on the field so that you can watch your child’s performance.
